I do check it out from time to time, but mostly just for benchmarks. The quality of news reporting on GOL is simply so much better.

I know of it, occasionally open a link to it. But when I briefly tried to follow their RSS, I wasn't really interested.

Skimming the headlines and picking out some of the articles is useful for taking the temperature of progress in areas that are of interest to the Linux ecosystem. The comments are absolutely terrible, and no one should ever read them. The articles themselves often don't contain enough detail to bring a reader up to speed with what they're about (although that does seem to have improved a little bit recently, which is nice), and they'll often only link back to a Phoronix article search rather than primary sources, which is pretty frustrating.

Only to check the heartbeat of various projects.

Only when GOL mentions an article from Phoronix. :)

How shall I respond? Yes? Sometimes?

Only check GOL. The few times I visited Phoronix, found their style and UX horrendous, and the forums too, so stopped altogether. I do visit The Register weekly for some IT/Linux related news too, though.

I mainly read it with my rss feed aggregator; if there is something that interests me, i enter the site.
It certainly is an unpleasant experience, but being Phoronix itself a feed aggregator (+benchmarks), at least it is useful.
Sometimes i jump (and move away in little time) into the forums to get some more bits of fast information if the article is not clear enough to me.

I read every day the titles, sometimes I read the articles themselves and rarely the comments.
damarrin 15 Nov, 2021
Yeah, the level of discussion on Phoronix is frightening.

Still, I enjoy the site.

I barely understand most of what Larabel writes, so I gave up a few years ago. Feels like quite a techy and Linux-y site, which you'd think would be a good thing, since I'm a network-y, techy/nerdy, Linux user. But he writes about stuff I just don't care about. CPU microcode, Tensor, CUDA, GPU pipelines, Git versions, Kernel nuances. Its a hardware site, I suppose, but he manages to find angles on stuff I have near-zero interest in and rarely explains why it might be interesting.

And yeah, Phoronix comments tend to be even more techy than Larabel himself, which isn't very helpful, nor welcoming.
